Helpful links for Paper One

I'll update this post with links to helpful sample readings for our first paper. I highly encourage you to post links yourself in the comments! For now, I just have a quick one, Salon's "Summer School". I am handing out one of these articles in class today.

Summer School. These are in a slightly different genre than what you're writing, but I think they're helpful nonetheless. In particular, they're a good example of what it's like to describe a personal experience with reading and how it affects you.

Wow, she really doesn't like "Lord of the Flies". When i was a freshmen i was also required to read it. At first i really didn't like it either, but once i got into it i felt it really explored the human...or not so human mind. It made me really wonder if i was in that situation, would i behave in the same "animalistic" way? I did find the the author's account of her experience really funny though. She did make some good points, but i disagree with her views on the book.
